Salve, Mouser, and thanks for taking the time for me. Actually, no that isn't checked, and that's because I grab a lot of shots to paste right into my Thunderbird (SC and TB is an awesome combination!). However, after you told me to do a few grabs right in a row, for some reason, that made a difference. Now if I do the "Keep Image and Show" it actually shows like it is supposed to! And now I understand that if the option isn't set, it doesn't save the image - that part, it seems, was my misunderstanding. About the image not showing after a grab, however, I don't know what was wrong, but after I did the multiple grabs in a row, I can't reproduce it any more! Now, I absolutely know I had that problem because it was an issue for a very long time. I am not crazy, really, I'm not!
Anyway, thanks for your time, Mouser. SC is my favourite screenshot program. I always fall in love with programs that give me so many options that I can do exactly what I want and how I want. SC is awesome, and I appreciate your generosity in making it available (for free!) to us. If I didn't have a vow of poverty (I am a Catholic religious brother), I would send you a donation.
